i wonder if the sound guy was dosed, its kinda funny and sad.. for Bear, sorry. wicked performance despite the problems. the aud patches of course come at peak moments, but at least we still hear it. i just start getting used to it then it comes back. very enjoyable!

You have Easy Wind and Man's World together in one show.
Saint Stephen is fully jammed out.

6/6 electric and 6/4 acoustic are preferred for this stand though.

Subject: The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live On Stage" June 5, 1970, at the Fillmore West, San Francisco, California, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA


I think these guys were still losing money for Warner Brothers in 1970...

Performing before the hometown crowd the DEAD kick it in gear and prove they have what it takes to rule the underground.

Here they are, the scariest band in 1970...

I highly recommend adding this show to your 1970 GRATEFUL DEAD collection.

The "Original" GRATEFUL DEAD.

If you weren't alive in 1970 you can't imagine it. California had the best schools in the country in they have the worst...ah, progress.

I recommend using your EQ during playback of most of the shows on the IA, this one included.

Windows Media Player has a 10 band EQ and SRS WOW effects that enhance the sound.

Here's one way to stream/dowload this show:

The IA recommends users of Windows XP view this web-page with RealPlayer.

RealPlayer is a free media player you can download at

Using RealPlayer to view this webpage, click the VBR M3U link to open the songs in the Playlist.

If your Playlist is not open, open it by clicking the Playlist icon at the lower right hand corner of RealPlayer.

Once the songs are in the Playlist, double click the song to play it, then click the record button at the lower left hand corner of Realplayer to record it.

When the red line reaches the other end click the stop button to download the song.

Your song is in the RealPlayer Downloads folder. Repeat these steps for each song.


you could just hook up your audio cables from your computer to your cassette, VHS, CD, DVD or whatever "recorder" and record it in real time...OMG.

Thanks for the TWO DISC set up....

Eat, Drink, Be Merry and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD for tomorrow we may die.

Thanks for the LOVE from 1970.

PS: Remember to click on the "DeadLists Project" link and get the Poster for this show.

PSS: Get June 4,5,6, & 7, 1970 at the Fillmore West...all are on the archive.

PSSS: if you want to rate my review feel free to use the Forum to vent your hate, opinion, and rants...I won't read em anyway...

It is funny to hear Bear get cussed out by PigPen.....

The boyz really get pissed at Bear....

I don't know why I think it is so funny....Bear must have been super stoned (like me right now)Z or really confused.....

Now that I think about it...maybe it isn't too funny..... I betcha Bear was having a super stress attack .... at least getting a good buzz kill.....
